I know both driver tubes, output tubes and rectifiers affect the final sound of a tube amp. Here's my current questions. I recently got a new tube integrated amp using (2) 6SL7's for driver tubes and (4) 6V6GT's for the output tubes.
These are all current production tubes made in Russia the 6SL7's are Tung Sol and the 6V6S are JJ/Tesla. The bass response is pretty lean compared to my Dared MP5 hybrid integrated, especially at low level listening. If I really get on the volume the bass improves a little bit.
Both unit are in the 12-15wpc range, running my modded 5B's and I know they are capable of better, deeper, more solid bass.
1) which area will get me more bass the driver tube or output tube? or both. I do plan on replacing all tubes with vintage tubes.
2) since the amp was damaged in shipping I am currently unable to use the 8 ohm tap. Is there a possibility that the 8 ohm tap will give more bass?
Just looking for some opinion's...........I'm sure I'll find out soon enough when the vintage tubes start arriving and I start rolling.
